St. Paul offers us good news and bad news. The good news? The Gospel is open to all. The bad news we hear today applies to those who knew nothing of God’s saving work, but also didn’t exert any effort to use their minds to see the light of truth.

Let’s take a look at some of the central themes in the readings for the 29th Sunday of the Year.

1st Reading – Isaiah 53:10-11

  • The Church applies this passage of the “suffering servant” to Jesus Christ, whose saving passion and death is offered for “the many.”
  • This passage is referenced heavily during Holy Week.

Psalm – 33:4-5,18-20,22

  • “Lord, let your mercy be on us, as we place our trust in you.”
  • Psalm 33 praises God and encourages us to turn to the Lord with open hearts.

2nd Reading – Hebrews 4:14-16

  • The humanity of Jesus is emphasized, and he understands our temptations and weaknesses.
  • Because he became like us, we can confidently approach the Son of God to receive mercy, grace and help.

Gospel – Mark 10:35-45

  • Jesus responds to the question posed by James and John with a reflection on the role of suffering.
  • The Lord then shows how service to others reveals true greatness in the kingdom of heaven.
